IONOS Database as a Service (DBaaS)

What is Database as a Service?

DBaaS (also known as Managed Database Service) is a cloud computing service that allows users access to, and the use of, a cloud database system. Users can access this without purchasing and setting up their own hardware, installing their own database software, or managing the database themselves.
Ensuring optimal functioning of the IONOS DBaaS is a shared responsibility. The IONOS DBaaS team is responsible for all IT and Operational tasks related to the platform that keep the databases running.The IONOS DBaaS team therefore assumes responsibility for:
  • Periodic upgrades
  • Backups
  • Ensuring that the database system remains available and secure 24/7.
  • Etc.
The user must appoint a Database Administrator who is responsible for the database itself. Based on the data stored, the user assumes responsibility for:
  • Optimisation
  • Date organisation
  • Creating indexes
  • Updating statistics
  • Consult access plans to optimize queries
  • Etc.
The business value of DBaaS is its ability to enable rapid time to market by improving productivity, standardization and data security.
DBaaS is currently in ****closed Early-Access phase. We recommend keeping usage and testing to non-production critical applications. Please contact your sales representative or support for more information.
